When it comes to camping in Trinidad, you’ll find it’s a little different than many other parts of the world. This is because there aren’t really any dedicated and supervised campgrounds in the country. However, that doesn’t mean people don’t enjoy camping out in the beautiful countryside, especially on the wonderful sandy beaches.
Camping’s pretty popular in Trinidad in the dry season, especially during the Easter long weekends.
If you’re planning on camping out that weekend, it’s a good idea to find a spot and get there early, as the best and most popular camping spots can get pretty crowded very quickly.
Most people camp on government and private lands in Trinidad, and basically pitch a tent wherever they can find a suitable spot. Many landowners will charge a minimal fee and let you camp out on their property as long as you clean up afterwards.
You should always check with a landowner first before choosing a spot to camp. Many people camp on beaches because they’re not privately owned. However, if you plan on camping in the wilderness in Trinidad, it’s recommended that you inform the local police where you’ll be staying and how long you’ll be there.
When you’re finished, let them know that you’re moving on. There’s some amazing scenery in Trinidad and hiking and camping expeditions are a great way to explore it. Just make sure you take all of the necessary precautions, including mobile phones.
